Wellington, Dec 19 NZPA -Two more youths have admitted stealing items from a woman who has now been charged with making a false rape complaint arising from an incident at Corsair Bay last month.

All four youths have now either pleaded guilty or been remanded for the diversion scheme for first offenders, after a series of appearances in the Christchurch District Court, Christchurch Court News website reported.

They were all investigated as part of the inquiry that followed the 33-year-old woman's gang rape allegations.
